In this week’s episode of Economic Update, Professor Wolff delivers updates on Trump's 2019 $1 trillion plus deficit, the burden of debt on poor countries, Amsterdam’s forgiveness of the debts of young people, the fund-raising strategies of "strong man" governments and the gross failures of the GOP’s/Trump’s 2017 tax cut.
The second half of this week’s show features an interview with Rob Robinson of the Left Forum and Karen Ranucci of the Center for Critical Thought on their collaboration to serve the rising interest in socialism in the U.S. and how it is helping to build a movement for a transition away from capitalism as we know it.
